What is Natural Stone?
“Natural Stone” refers to a number of products quarried from the earth, used over many thousands of years as building materials and decorative enhancements. These products include Granite, Marble, Limestone, Travertine, Slate, Quartzite, Sandstone, Adoquin, Onyx, and others. They are more than just rocks – natural stone is hand selected from the best, most consistent sources for durability and beauty.
Natural stone products differ in composition, color, and texture even among pieces from the same source. This is usually considered a benefit, lending itself to one of a kind designs and distinctive, dramatic applications.
Why should I use natural stone in my home?
Natural stone is prized its distinctive beauty and the sense of peaceful tranquility it creates, but there are also many practical benefits to using Natural Stone in your home. Natural Stone products are more durable than many artificial products, often lasting for decades with very little maintenance. With Natural Stone there are no worries about exposure to harmful chemicals in the home or released into the environment during production or disposal. Why invest time and money into a look-alike? Natural Stone is the real thing that the artificial products try to emulate.
How Can I Keep My Stone Looking Great?
- Routine Cleaning: When you have natural stone surfaces in your home or business, it is important that you keep up with a routine cleaning schedule. You will want to use soft microfiber rags and cleaning tools to maintain the surface of your natural stone countertops and floors on a daily basis. In areas with less traffic try to wipe down your stone surfaces with a microfiber towel and safe cleaning products a few times a week and schedule routine maintenance with our stone specialists.
- Keep Your Stone Polished: Polished surfaces can leave you with a highly reflective shine that is sure to impress all who enter your home. At Modern Stone Care our team of experts work with you to choose the perfect finish for your stone, this includes honed finishes for when you want that modern matte look. No matter what you are interested, a solid finish on your stone keeps it protected and looking great.
- Maintain a Strong Seal: Natural stone is highly porous, making it vulnerable to moisture and other outside influences. Keeping a strong seal on all of your surfaces will protect your stone from serious damage, giving you many more years with your gorgeous natural surfaces. If you are unsure if the seal on your countertops or floors is strong, you can do a moisture test. Leave a quarter sized drop of water on your stone surface, come back and check in an hour. If the water has been absorbed into your stone, this means you are due for a new seal.
